StringContainer class

The StringContainer class abstracts a fixed-size string (e.g. StringContainer<10> is a string with exactly 10 characters). Several frequently repeated types in the code are actually aliases to StringContainer, or classes that inherit a StringContainer of a given size.
For a simpler outlook, refer to this simple guide:
  • PrivKey is an alias to StringContainer<32>
  • UncompressedPubkey is an alias to StringContainer<65>
  • CompressedPubkey is an alias to StringContainer<33>
  • Hash is a class that inherits StringContainer<32>
  • Signature is a class that inherits StringContainer<65>
To get the content of any StringContainer, use the data() function:
StringContainer<10> str = "HelloWorld";
std::cout << << std::endl;
